Tooth Extraction

The basic rule of Dentistry in Turkey is to repair damaged teeth and ensure that they return to their natural state. However, in some extraordinary cases, Tooth Extraction in Turkey is performed if the dental treatments do not respond. Tooth extraction is the process of removing the tooth from its socket called socket in the bone. Surgical procedures performed with anesthesia can be performed in cases where there is incurable tooth extraction, tooth root or bone pathologies, conditions requiring implant surgery, bone formation procedures, and tissue preparation before prosthesis. Intense tooth decay, tooth infection, procedures related to orthodontic treatment and similar problems threatening oral health may require tooth extraction. In addition, patients who have undergone chemotherapy or have undergone an organ transplant may have dental extraction to maintain oral health. 

Many patients may experience pain problems prior to extraction, but the correct technique and the application of extraction performed by a specialist dentist is almost painless and there is a rapid recovery process. Patients can continue their social life in a short time after the procedure. In tooth extraction, the technique of extraction used is important. In Myra Dental Clinic, which is equipped with modern equipment, you can safely perform dental extraction with specialists.

What is Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is the name of the procedure performed with local anesthesia and removal of the tooth from its socket. Tooth extraction is performed in cases where the tooth loses its function because of pain or bad breath and tooth filling is not possible. It is done when the final stage of tooth decay is reached. Before, if appropriate, canal treatment or filling is performed. Tooth extraction is considered as the last step by dentists. Some tooth extraction procedures require surgical intervention and can sometimes be done through general anesthesia. However, this is a method applied to teeth that have problems with extraction like embedded teeth. Dentistry has gone through a long scientific phase and uses all available technologies to protect our natural teeth. However, in some cases, teeth have been so damaged by decay that the patient is admitted to tooth extraction because of maintaining health or planning treatment.

How is Tooth Extraction performed?

When a situation requiring tooth extraction occurs, the dentist performs various dental treatments to save the tooth. Instead of pulling out a tooth that can be preserved for many years, it is important to plan to treat it first. Although most people are afraid of tooth extraction, it can sometimes be done as the last solution. Tooth extraction is a simple operation usually performed under local anesthesia. Tooth extraction has no specific duration. Because factors such as the position of the tooth, which tooth it is, caries can directly affect the duration of tooth extraction. The dentist decides which type of anesthesia will be performed. Dentists generally prefer regional anesthesia to the lower jaw. In this case, the lower lip will fit in half on the anesthetized side; and numbness takes a few hours. After anesthesia is obtained in the region to be extracted, the dentist performs the extraction in a short time with the tools he / she chooses. The attraction is not a force show; it is a technical process that is supported by knowledge and experience. So it doesn’t matter whether the dentist is a man or a woman. It is a completely technique-based process. If the tooth breaks during the operation, the remaining part of the tooth in the bone is removed with a tool called elevator.

In which cases is Tooth Extraction done?

Teeth should be removed when the teeth become infected and are now a health risk. It is better to perform tooth extraction 20 teeth at an early age. The 20s teeth extraction in the later years cause the person to have bigger problems due to the low flexion in the jaw bones. Complaints such as swelling pain during 20 tooth extractions are seen. After the shooting, numbness and numbness appear on the lip. As the root development of the jaw is not fully formed when young, such adversities do not occur. Extraction of 20 teeth is easier at 18-22 years old.

  • Teeth that cannot be saved by treatment due to too many caries and loss of substance,
  • Broken teeth that are impossible to cure,
  • Abscessed teeth that cannot be recovered despite the application of canal treatment,
  • Teeth swaying due to intense gingivitis,
  • Milk teeth that do not fall on time,
  • Teeth that cause problems due to the change of position,
  • Cyst or tumor teeth,
  • Embedded and problematic teeth,
  • In order for orthodontic treatment to be successful, some teeth may be pulled out, even though it is uneventful.

Tooth Extraction stages

In some cases tooth extraction may be mandatory. The tooth may be rotten and unrecoverable, or the gum around the tooth may be deficient in function so that there is not enough bone left and the binding tissue that will keep the tooth tied to the jaw will not work. These are situations that require tooth extraction. Some teeth, such as pinching of the 20th tooth, are pulled out because they are not positioned correctly in the mouth. In the first stage, your mouth and teeth are examined and the x-ray of the related tooth is taken. So your dentist evaluates the condition of the bone around the root. You should inform the dentist about your health and any previous tooth extractions. Also, don’t forget to give information about the drugs you use. If you are using birth control pills, report these as well, as this can cause problems during recovery. If a tooth infection is detected during the examination, you may be asked to use antibiotics before pulling your tooth. By following the dentist’s instructions, you should facilitate tooth extraction. In the second stage, tooth extraction takes place and the process is completed within 1 hour at the latest.

Tooth Extraction techniques

Although patients think that tooth extraction is done with a single technique, there are actually many tooth extraction techniques. Different techniques are applied in places such as upper right jaw, lower right jaw, upper left jaw, lower left jaw, upper anterior jaw, lower anterior jaw. In addition, the correct positions to be taken during tooth extraction vary. The use of these techniques depends on the dentist’s expertise. Tooth extraction in Turkey, are made by dentists using these techniques. Different techniques are applied depending on the condition of the tooth. For example, the same technique does not apply to embedded teeth, 20 teeth and very problematic teeth.

Before Tooth Extraction

If you have a chronic condition such as heart, diabetes, high blood pressure, even if the dentist does not ask, you should share it. Tell your doctor if you are taking medication. In addition, women who are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant should also tell their doctor before tooth extraction. Brush your teeth before tooth extraction and rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash. This helps to prevent inflammation that may occur after tooth extraction.

  • For those with heart disease, the choice of the appropriate anesthetic agent is made by the dentist. If the patient is using blood thinners, they should choose this procedure in consultation with the dentist. In this case, the drug use is stopped one day before to avoid excessive bleeding.
  • People with blood diseases should also inform the dentist about this. Any negativity should be avoided by using appropriate drugs.
  • Those who take medication for psychological problems should also report it. This condition is an important factor in the selection of drugs used in anesthesia.
  • Diabetics should follow the same procedure and have their teeth pulled at the appropriate time. In this case, the use of drugs to stop the blood after the shooting can be done.
  • It is the dentist who will decide on the use of antibiotics before tooth extraction. Antibiotics may be recommended in people with heart disease, diabetes, and people with excess infection.
  • If it is not very necessary for women during their period, tooth extraction should not be done.
  • The first trimester of pregnancy will not be appropriate anesthesia, you should avoid tooth extraction. In the following months, tooth extraction can be done with the approval of the dentist. It will be beneficial for pregnant women since the infected area will be eliminated. The appropriate dose of anesthesia will not harm.
  • Patients with allergies and high blood pressure should provide the dentist with the necessary information and ensure that appropriate anesthetics are used.
  • For those with liver problems, it is important to use appropriate anesthetics. The anesthesia that will be used due to liver disease may be difficult to remove from the body. Appropriate anesthesia should be used for this.

After Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is done for various reasons and in some cases at the request of the patient. Tooth extraction is the last method to be used in dentistry today. Dozens of dental treatment methods have been developed. Damaged teeth can be saved with these treatment methods. Abscessed teeth, excessively carious teeth or very aching teeth do not need to be pulled out immediately. These teeth can be treated by applying canal treatment or tooth filling. It is necessary to leave the tooth extraction to the decision of the dentist. The patient cannot decide this. There are some important points to consider after tooth extraction

  • After the tooth extraction, keep the cotton or gauze pad placed by the dentist for 20-25 minutes. This buffer stops bleeding at the operation site and speeds up the healing process. Replacing the tampon frequently prevents blood clots from forming.
  • If pain occurs after the procedure, you should take a painkiller recommended by the dentist. Do not use blood thinners. These pains can persist for 2 days. It is usual.
  • After the operation, there may be bleeding in the form of leaks for 24 hours. But if there is a lot of bleeding, you can make a cotton pad. If the bleeding continues for a long time, consult your dentist. In the meantime, make sure to buffer and try to control bleeding. Do not change the bumper frequently.
  • Do not smoke and drink alcohol for 1 day after tooth extraction. It prevents the blood clot from forming in a healthy way. Do not consume too hot and cold foods. These can cause the bleeding to start again. Only warm and soft things can be consumed.
  • If a very difficult tooth extraction operation has been performed, you can make an ice press at the operation place after the operation. It will relax you, prevent swelling and bruising.
  • The root may break during tooth extraction. It can be rooted by the dentist’s decision. In this case, you should leave the decision to the dentist. It may be necessary to leave the root with the necessary treatment and remove it after 2-3 months or to leave the root completely under some conditions.
  • Do not tamper with the wound area with your tongue or anything. Do not prevent the wound from healing.

How long does Tooth Extraction take?

Tooth extraction is a simple procedure that usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes. This period may vary depending on the condition of the tooth. However, it is possible to say that there is a transaction that can be completed during the day. If there is a treatment applied before tooth extraction, this treatment is expected to be completed and is waited until the day of tooth extraction. In fact, tooth extraction is a process that takes only minutes, but it may take an average of 1 hour with the preparation done before and the procedures applied afterwards. You may need to visit the dentist again for possible problems after tooth extraction. There may be bleeding, excessive pain, and similar symptoms. Briefly; tooth extraction time is short but the treatments applied before and after are not included in this period.

Tooth Extraction healing process

It is quite natural that various symptoms occur in the place of the extracted tooth after the application of tooth extraction treatment. What is important at this point is the severity and scope of these symptoms. In this context, as one of the most common symptoms, edema occurs after tooth extraction. Edema is the formation of swelling and bruises in the area. If edema occurs, it must be observed for 48 hours. The ice pack must be applied to the area where tooth extraction is applied for 5 to 10 minutes. With such applications, edema loses its effect within 4 – 5 days. The patient is more comfortable when the first of the analgesics given for the pain after the operation is taken before the effect of local anesthesia passes. Because the effect of analgesics starts in about half an hour. Some patients complain that strong analgesics are nauseous; in order to prevent this, it is useful to take the drug on a full stomach after eating. The response of patients to analgesics is variable. Some patients may need to take two pills. The most severe pain is the first 6 hours after the effect of local anesthesia. After this time, the need for analgesics will also decrease. If a large number of analgesics are needed, the dentist should be consulted. Performing tooth extraction can cause serious problems on the gum that is sensitive and problematic. At this point, it is also possible to see more serious symptoms in the gums with general symptoms. Gingival problems after tooth extraction generally cover the healing process. Accordingly, the healing process in the gum under the extracted tooth covers a period of 9 to 10 days after the stitches are removed. After tooth extraction, stitches are removed after 1 week. For special cases, the dentist can choose the stitches that have the feature of self-melting. If various complications occur after tooth extraction, you should contact the dentist as soon as possible.

Surgical Tooth Extraction

Not every tooth extraction may be easy. This situation is completely dependent on the patient’s mouth and teeth structure. Performing tooth extraction under difficult conditions and requiring surgical intervention is called surgical tooth extraction. If extracting teeth using more time and tools, this is surgical tooth extraction. Surgical Tooth Extraction is not applied in the pulling of the swinging teeth due to gum disease. The teeth are easily pulled because they are shaking. But if a buried tooth or a broken tooth is required to be extracted, surgical tooth extraction is performed. Sometimes, stitches may be required in the mouth to heal the wound faster after surgical tooth extraction. Surgical attraction is a technique that cannot be seen easily in the mouth, broken in the gingival border or used in the extraction of buried teeth. In some cases, there may be bone on the tooth that needs to be removed. The tooth to be removed may need to be removed after it has been divided into sections. In these cases, surgical tooth extraction is applied. As with normal shooting, it can be performed with local anesthesia. In order to reach the tooth, the removal of the bone and the partitioning of the tooth can be done by laser.

What is Embedded Tooth Extraction?

Embedded teeth are called teeth that are not where they should be in the mouth. All of the embedded teeth can remain inside the jaw bone; in fact, they are in the right place and may not appear because they have only soft tissue on them. The teeth, in which some of the teeth are seen in the mouth and the remaining part is under the gum, are also called semi-embedded teeth. Most often, 20-year-old teeth, followed by canine teeth, can often remain embedded in the jawbone. In some cases, embedded canine teeth are maintained at their required positions with orthodontic treatment. But in cases where this is not possible or if embedded teeth damage other teeth or cause a source of infection and pathology; tooth extraction can be applied.

Embedded Tooth Extraction treatment

20 years old teeth are the last teeth in the mouth. Since they are in a region that is difficult to reach and see, brushing and maintenance can be more difficult than other teeth. Due to insufficient brushing, 20 years old teeth can rot easily and cause pain and bad breath. In some cases, 20-year-old teeth cannot come out because of the narrow space in the jaws. They can remain fully embedded teeth and remain under the gum and become associated with the mouth. In this case, they cause compression and accumulation of food in the region where they come out of the gum, causing an infection. This condition, which causes swelling and redness of the gum around the 20-year-old female, severe pain spreading to the neck and ear, swelling of the lymph nodes, swelling and swallowing, is called pericoronitis. Embedded 20 year old teeth can compress the teeth in front of them and create curvature in the teeth. In addition, they can put pressure on the neighboring tooth and cause it to rot. The embedded tooth, which has not been noticed for many years, can cause serious problems by causing cysts that reach large sizes in the jaw. Even if it does not cause any problems, 20 years old teeth may need to be removed for orthodontic treatment in order for other teeth to be properly aligned. For such reasons, 20-year-old teeth should be extracted with local anesthesia only by numbing the area where they are located. Treatment of embedded teeth, which is a serious threat to oral and dental health, provides advantages in many ways. From time to time, although the treatment of embedded teeth is neglected, you need to know how important embedded dental treatment is. With the treatment, tooth loss caused by embedded teeth is prevented. Tooth decay is prevented. Formation of cysts and tumors in the mouth is prevented and a healthy tooth sequence is provided. Also, bad breath problems are eliminated and you will have cleaner teeth.

Differences between Embedded Tooth Extraction and standard Tooth Extraction

Oral, dental and maxillofacial surgeons, who are among the dentistry departments, perform dental extraction and embedded tooth extraction. Embedded tooth extraction is the procedure of removing 20 years old teeth under the skin by surgical intervention, while tooth extraction is the process of removing teeth that are apparently damaged and incurable. Embedded teeth are far behind, preventing the gum around the normal anatomical structure and enabling it to be easily inflamed. Firstly, it is planned together with the patient how the tooth can be extracted by performing an oral examination by a specialist jaw surgeon, evaluating the position of the embedded tooth, difficulty of pulling, root formation of the tooth, the patient’s age and current systemic condition. During the surgical operation, after evaluating the factors such as the position of the embedded tooth, root structure, difficulty of pulling, and the anatomical structure of the neighboring teeth, the embedded tooth can be removed as a whole and also removed in several parts. After all the general evaluations, you can decide how to remove the embedded tooth and anesthesia shape with your jaw surgeon. Embedded teeth often remain silent, unless they manifest themselves with pain in the jaw. The cause of pain in the chin is basically the embedded tooth pushing the others. When these teeth are located in the upper jaw, they can cause anterior ear pain, originating from the jaw joint. In this case, tooth extraction may be beneficial in order to maintain the jaw joint biomechanical balance. Embedded dental surgery takes an average of 1 hour and the patient can be performed with general anesthesia or regional anesthesia in the form of nerve blocks.

Tooth Extraction care

After the day of tooth extraction, try to move as little as possible and rest. Take care to keep your head up to prevent possible bleeding. Having a calm day speeds up the healing process. Avoid hot foods and beverages until the effect of anesthesia has passed. Since you will not feel pain while under the anesthetic effect, you can burn your mouth. Also, be careful not to chew your cheek. Since you will not feel anything due to anesthesia, there may be a problem during eating and drinking. You have to be a little patient. While resting, try to keep your head high overnight, if possible, using an extra pillow. If you are bleeding, use an old pillowcase or put a paper towel on your pillow. Do not rinse your mouth for 24 hours. Mark the healing of the dental socket. Be careful not to chew with the area where the socket is located and rubbing your tongue over it to avoid damaging the clots. If you do not pay attention to these, the treatment area may get infected and make recovery difficult. 

Stay away from alcohol during 1 day after operation. Alcohol causes bleeding and delays recovery. Eat warm food and drinks. Take care not to chew anything with the operated part. It is important to keep your mouth clean after tooth extraction. The next day, you can start brushing your teeth lightly. You may have a slight bleeding on the first day, this is normal. Most people worry about the amount of bleeding. When a small amount of blood mixes with saliva, people feel anxious to think they have a lot of bleeding. If you notice that the bleeding continues, avoid shaking. Instead, apply pressure to the toothed cavity with a clean pad. Squeeze a clean piece of cotton, place it on the place of operation and bite for at least 15 minutes. Make sure to place the cotton properly and replace it with a new one if necessary. If bleeding still persists at the end of 1-2, contact your dentist. Things that increase your blood pressure can cause increased bleeding. After tooth extraction, you should avoid smoking as much as possible. You should not smoke at least on the day of operation and the next day. The rate of recovery after tooth extraction varies from person to person. It is important to keep your mouth in general and especially the area where the extracted tooth is clean, to keep food residues away from this area. Not rinsing your mouth for 24 hours will help start healing. Gargling with salt water after 24 hours also helps healing. Rinse your mouth twice a day with a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water. Continue to do this for as long as your dentist recommends. Eating healthy is also important for the healing process. For example, you can take vitamin C supplements during this process. If it is a difficult tooth extraction, your dentist will give you an appointment again for follow-up. While you can only follow the improvement in appointments, you can also take your stitches if any. Otherwise, you should be in contact with the dentist.

Tooth Extraction risks

If you don’t have a healthy immune system, infection is likely after tooth extraction. The most common complication is dry bone inflammation caused by the absence of a blood clot in the socket from which the tooth was removed, or by the deterioration of the resulting blood clot. In dry bone inflammation, the underlying bone is exposed so that it can come into contact with air and food residues. This process is very painful; it can create a bad taste and smell in the mouth. If dry bone inflammation occurs, the dentist makes dressings in certain periods and the pain is relieved and healed. The most important factor among Tooth Extraction risks is infection. Infection can cause serious problems.

Tooth Extraction FAQ

We know that there are many patients who are afraid of the Tooth Extraction process. After reading the Tooth Extraction frequently asked questions section, you will actually understand how unwarranted this fear is. We answered all your questions.

  • Can tooth extraction and implant be performed on the same day?

    The condition of the extracted tooth and the bone surrounding it is decisive in this regard. If there is enough bone left after shooting and there is no infection or cyst-like formation in the surrounding tissues, an implant can be placed in the same session.

  • What is the best time for 20 years old tooth extraction?

    An embedded and poorly positioned 20 year old tooth should be extract between the ages of 14 and 22, regardless of whether or not it causes discomfort. Operations at an early age are easier to perform and recovery is quicker. In the advanced ages, operations become difficult and the recovery period is extended.

  • How to extract teeth with general anesthesia?

    General anesthesia, which is a great solution for patients who are afraid of tooth extraction, is rarely applied. General anesthesia may be needed for long-lasting surgical procedures in those with fear of dentists, people with nausea or gag reflex excess. For the disabled patient group, tooth extraction with general anesthesia is extremely comfortable. It can be difficult for disabled patients to sit in the dentist's chair and continue the procedures. General anesthesia is a savior for both families and patients and physicians in these situations. Before the tooth is pulled with general anesthesia, the patient is put to sleep and connected to the anesthesia device. In this case, the patient does not feel pain or pain in any way because he is in deep sleep. The patient is connected to a respirator by inserting a breathing tube through the nose or mouth to extract tooth. The goal is to ensure that the patient is fully asleep until the tooth extraction is finished.

  • Is it right to use antibiotics when pain or swelling occurs before or after tooth extraction?

    Pain or swelling indicates that inflammation has occurred. In this case, the dentist will recommend the appropriate antibiotic for his patient before tooth extraction. Tooth extraction should be done before antibiotic use ends. Depending on the use of antibiotics, complaints should not be deceived and tooth extraction should not be stopped. Otherwise, the complaints will recur more severely.

  • Should tooth extraction be made for every 20 year old teeth?

    If the 20-year-old teeth, which are completely applied in the mouth, can be cleaned easily and there is no deep caries on them, this tooth extraction is not required. However, tooth extraction can be done for 20 teeth that cannot be easily cleaned with dental floss and brush, which have bruises on them and can rub against the cheek or tongue and involuntarily bite the cheek and tongue.

  • How do I overcome the fear of tooth extraction?

    In special cases where it is understood that the fear of tooth extraction cannot be eliminated in any way, it can be done under general anesthesia. However, mostly the dialogue and approach between the patient and the doctor show that such an intervention is not required. First of all, it should be remembered that it is necessary to get rid of this, considering the damages of the tooth to the body and the negativities such as pain. Once a good numbness has been achieved, during shooting, only a feeling of pressure and small creaking can be heard during the rise of the tooth. There should be no pain or pain. Do not be affected by wrong suggestions and ask any questions to the dentist for information.

  • Can tooth extraction be performed for chronic patients?

    You should definitely tell your dentist about your chronic diseases, the medications you use and all the problems you experience before tooth extraction. If necessary, your doctor will be contacted and information will be obtained. Your tooth extraction or treatment can be done by making arrangements for the medicines you use.

  • How is tooth extraction performed in children?

    The first experiences of children at the dentist are very important. Fear of a dentist often results from a bad experience in childhood. During the treatment of children, it is more correct to perform milk tooth extraction after the child's 1-2 sessions of acclimation. Anesthesia is essential to prevent pain during tooth extraction. Children are especially afraid of needles and anesthesia. Using digital anesthesia can make tooth extractions easier in children. With the single tooth anesthesia method, anesthetic is applied with a small tip like a pen without a syringe and the shooting is easily performed by reducing the child's anxiety.

  • How is Tooth Extraction in Orthodontics?

    Most orthodontic disorders are caused by the fact that tooth sizes are incompatible with jaw size. If this problem is not too severe, chin dilations or rasping are made on the right and left sides of the teeth. If the problem is even more severe, tooth extraction can be done.
